So, I found this old skirt of mine.
I got it at kohls awhile ago. I don't know what I was thinking though, because it's pretty ugly. It's an awkward length and weird flowy and reminds me of a poodle skirt.
Yeah. not doing anything for me.
SO. I decided to make it into a dress! First thing I did was make a cute accent belt to give it shape. I made flower accents for it out of satin flower. I cut out various size circles out of satiny fabric.
And then used a hand-held lighter to burn the edges so they would curl up.
I hot-glued them on top of each other to form the flower.
I made three flowers and hot glued them onto some ribbon.
I also hot glued some pink rhinestones on for a little more flair :)
Then I sewed on some straps, tied the flower belt around my waist, and now I have a cute summery dress!
So much better than that old awkward poodle skirt!
Have any old ugly skirts?? Think twice before chucking them!!
